    I'm getting together today with a friend to make some freezer meals and one of our recipes is my Scalloped Potatoes and Ham. We thought we'd make frozen dinners for the crock pot, and just bag everything uncooked and freeze flat..now I'm worried about the raw potatoes. Should we blanch them...
  3. Food challenges
    I picked up a spiral ham for .88/ lb. I have a question tho. What is the best way to slice it? I know it's already spiral cut but I never know what to do with it after I get it home.

    I was at Dominick's tonight, picking up the final groceries I need before my family arrives and the clerk pulled out the Dominick's ad and typed in a code and I got $10 off my $13 ham!

  12. Question and Answer
    It's been hot here. I'd like to make something for dinner that I don't need to cook at all. I have some ham I could use, but there my creativity ends. The ham will end up in pieces, so sandwiches won't work. We don't have mayonaisse, so salads won't work. Any ideas?

    Our financial advisor sends us a wonderful Harry and David ham every year at Christmas. We are not big pork eaters so I'm at a loss as to what to do with the portions I have frozen. The only 5 things I can think of to do with it are: -Ham and Eggs -Potato and Ham Soup -Pinto beans w/Ham...
  16. Question and Answer
    We usually cure our own hams, but I moved this year and just didn't have the time and now that I am in an apartment I don't have the room either. So for Christmas dinner I got a Spiral Ham on sale. I cooked it and applied the glaze as per the instructions. I have to say it was VERY tasty...
  17. Question and Answer
    I made a ham and just froze the bone and some ham for soup later, but what do I do with the drippings? Seems a shame to waste them. I've never done anything with ham drippings. At the very least I could make some suet for the birdies - anyone have any other suggestions? Could I perhaps use them...

    Time to stock up folks. This time of year ham is on sale like no other time. I'm seeing local prices of $1.59 to $1.99 on spiral sliced hams from different stores and brands. I remove the sliced meat and repackage it in dinner sized servings, and then pack the chunks on the end of the bone to...
  19. Kitchen Basics
    I made a ham in the crockpot and it really was NOT a hit. It sort of fell apart like when you slow cook a roast. Good trait in a roast, not so much in a ham. The flavor was all right, the texture, not all right. Aside from dicing it and frying it up to throw onto potato soup, no ideas are...
